One challenge of gluten free baking is the desire for fluffiness. Rice, sorghum and other flours do not provide the light fluffiness of wheat. It drives me bonkers! I have thrown out so many cookies, biscuits, etc because they are dry like chalk.
The other weekend while enjoying a sunny morning at the Millarville Farmer's Market, I met a lovely GF baker and she shared her secret to lightness with me. What a sweetie!
Wuhoo!!! The carbonation adds some fluff and light. Oh yeah....oh yeah.....the house is on fire! Can you picture me shaking my ample bootay about the kitchen with turquoise tongs in hand and hair standing on end?!
So, this morning's Elmo and Cookie Monster pancakes are just as tasty as before a little bit fluffier.
